Abstract

The research focuses on the comparison of Antigone by Sophocles, which is not only one of the most widely read ancient Greek tragedies on the world stage, but it is also one of the most exquisite, most translated and most discussed classical texts of all time, and Antigone by Anouilh which is a modern recreation of the classical Greek drama. More specifically, the study examines the differences and similarities of the two dramas written at different period of time, starting with the title, the content and  the structure of the text, the description of the main and supporting characters, and finishing with the analysis of the themes in both dramas.
